Let's talk about Wish staterooms today. The staterooms on Disney Wish might just be my favorite on any ship I have ever sailed. Sure the nautical feel in the staterooms on the other Disney ships is nice but I personally love the lighter more whimsical rooms on Wish. Don't even get me started on the way to amazing suites onboard! Even the lowest priced room - which is a standard inside room - still feels spacious and luxurious. Of course then you also have the over the top, first of its kind, in the ship's funnel, Wish Tower Suite - which is bigger than my house!
Disney Wish has a total of 1,244 staterooms. 70% of those do have a verandah. Disney is a premium cruise line and you definitely feel that in the staterooms. Even the smallest room on Wish is bigger than most rooms on the cheaper Mass Market Cruise Lines. You also feel the difference in the amenities in your room. Disney puts so many little touches in the rooms that they are more than just a place you sleep while on vacation. Things like the split bathroom to even the new fridge on Wish that is a drawer just make cruising with a family easier.
Inside staterooms - Disney Wish changed things up for the inside rooms and does not offer any of the Deluxe Inside rooms so that does mean none of the inside rooms will have a split bathroom. They also did not bring the virtual portholes from Dream and Fantasy onto Wish. The Standard Inside Staterooms rooms are 169 sq ft and can sleep 3 or 4 guests. There are only 121 inside rooms.
Oceanview staterooms - There are 2 Category options for Oceanview either a Deluxe Oceanview (218 sq ft) or Deluxe Family Oceanview (237 sq ft). The Deluxe Family offers some rooms that can sleep up to 5 guests. The Oceanview room I was able to tour on my cruise had a very large and easy to sit in porthole. It was one of the Deluxe Family rooms so I am not sure if all rooms have that large window or not. There are 170 Oceanview rooms.
Verandah staterooms - There are also 2 Categories either Deluxe Oceanview with Verandah (243 sq ft) or Deluxe Family Oceanview with Verandah (284 sq ft). The Deluxe Family rooms can sleep up to 5 guests. The room I had on my cruise was a Verandah and while it really wasn't that much different in its layout than the other 4 Disney ships it still felt bigger I think because the room was so much lighter. My room was one of the ones that was slightly on what I call the bump out so we did have a sort of slanted verandah which seemed to have a little extra space. This is when it can be important to book your cruise early if you want to try and snag one of these "bump out" rooms. Sadly though my guess is if Disney realizes those rooms are more popular they might start charging more for them. There are 877 Verandah rooms.
Concierge rooms - There are a total of 76 concierge rooms which are broken up into 5 Categories and a couple of these are totally new room types for concierge. I will start with the Category that only has 1 room and that is the Wish Tower Suite (1966 sq ft). This is also the only concierge room not located inside the concierge area. Yes it is very cool that is located inside the ship's funnel and yes I did get to tour it. It is gorgeous and spacious, however I also feel like it might be kind of noisy because of where it is located. Just imagine the Pirate's night show going on right outside your room. Also since it is in the funnel it does not have a verandah so that means you have no outdoor area as part of your suite. Personally I feel like for the price tag Disney put on that it really isn't worth it.
My favorite suite was one of the 4 Royal Suites with Verandah. There are 2 options in this Category either a 1 Story Royal Suite with Verandah (1507 sq ft) or a 2 Story Royal Suite with Verandah (1759 sq ft). I loved the 2 Story Suite! It has a beautiful spiral staircase leading to the bedroom and the most amazing bathroom (yes I did hop in the tub for a photo). The first floor of the suite has another bedroom, dining and living area and a small kitchen. Besides the amazing bathroom it also has the best verandah ever! It is sort of a wedge shaped since it is at the very front of the ship but it has a nice size table and chairs, loungers, and a large hot tub. The 1 story suites are also very nice and have a large wrap around balcony so even though they don't have a second story they pretty much have just as much space and feel just as luxurious. Both the 1 and 2 Story Suites can sleep up to 6.
Then there are 18 of the 1 Bedroom Suites with Verandah (608 sq ft). These can sleep up to 5. Even though their bathrooms do not have a view they are still pretty amazing for a bathroom.
There are 46 of the Family Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah (296 sq ft). These are similar to the regular verandah rooms except they have a king bed. They can sleep up to 5.
Another new category of room for Concierge is the Family Oceanview staterooms (357 sq ft). These rooms have floor to ceiling windows. I didn't get to tour one of these but I really wanted to. There are only 7 of these rooms.
No matter what category you choose, all the rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I love the artwork that is above the headboard of each bed. There are different themes on the decks and the art in the rooms will match the hallway theme for that deck. The theme is in the hallway carpet and in the lighting. Even the little metal critter that is outside each door now also matches the theme of the deck. So I am thinking we can longer say fish extenders but maybe need to call them Wish extenders. There are just so many amazing little details everywhere on Wish and I love that Disney puts just as much detail in every stateroom too!
